0114 Fela Kuti   The Best Of The Black President 2

Nigerian icon and Afrobeat originator Fela Kuti passed away 15 years ago but to this day his legacy lives on across the globe with his still-relevant, forthright political views and powerful music. The complete works of Fela, consisting of almost 50 albums, are now being re-packaged, with in-depth track commentaries written by Afrobeat historian Chris May, and prepared for a three-batch re-launch between March and September 2013.
Listen to Everything Scatter!

This compilation is part of the complete Fela Kuti catalogue which will be reissued in the UK and Europe by Knitting Factory Records/ Kalakuta Sunrise throughout 2013, all with complete notes on each song. The first batch to be released on 4 March 2013.
